    I have 5 Apple TVs in the house all playing off my Mac Mini (the iTunes hub) but only 2 ATVs can connect at a time. On every other ATV says, "cannot connect to iTunes library."

    In order to get the other ATVs to connect, I have to quit iTunes and re-open, and the first 2 ATV to connect will be able to. Super frustrating.

    Are you merely advising us of this or are you seeking assistance? Anyway, according to the information found via the following link, the limitation *may* be a limitation of your wireless network throughput.

    I would like assistance please. I have a new Apple Airport Extreme Base Station and attached is my internet speed. The ATVs can all connect and watch Netflix at the same time but only 2 can connect to iTunes Sharing. The other ATVs will then say "Cannot connect to iTunes Library".

    Any help would be appreciated. Since posting, I've updated all the ATVs and restarted the iTunes computer. Still same issue. Only 2 AppleTV can connect at one time.

    I believe there's a physical limit to the number of devices you can associate with any one particular AppleID... Somewhere in the depths of my thinking space, the number 10 comes to mind... Look into how many devices are on your AppleID and get rid of any that are no longer in use to make room...
